>I am an independent reviewer. This book is a standalone college romance with an HEA. Ava is a driven college student. She takes everything seriously. She tutors to work for money to send to her mom and sister. She doesn’t take any time to party or have fun. Her backstory seems based in poverty. She is determined not to live the same way she was raised. She has a BFF, but the connection between Ava and her BFF doesn’t seem realistic. Ava doesn’t seem to really care about the friendship. Ava doesn’t seem to give, only take in the relationship.
>Ava’s tutoring of the football team cause the team to make a bet on who will be the first one to sleep with her, as they all believe she is a virgin. Channing is the QB. He is forced to work with Ava and is also in on the bet. His motivation for joining the bet is mainly to win and keep the other players away from her. It is cute to see Ava come out of her shell and fall for Channing. The really unique part of the story is to see Channing question football. Anyone who has ever played a Division 1 sport in college knows that the workload is worse than a full time job. Channing really begins to question what he wants to do in his future.
>I wish there were more actual football scenes to really show what Channing would be giving up. This book is appropriate for a young adult (18+) audience. I am giving this story 4 stars. The story is not that unique, but has some interesting aspects. The really upsetting thing is that the story ended at the 35% mark. Bonus books are included, but not mentioned when the book is up for purchase. When I purchase a book, I do not want a novella and bonus books I am not interested in.
These characters were written with such thought and the storyline is perfection. The jock and the 'shut in'. A bad bet, etc. but it works and these two go on one hell of a journey to get to their happily ever after. He comes from an old monied family with an alcoholic mother and an absent father. Ava is helping hold her own family (of a single mother and a younger sister) together and does it all while attending college and tutoring for extra money. The differences are vast but they are 100% perfect together.
I voluntarily requested an advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Ivy Jordan, thank you for being amazing at your craft. I highly recommend this book and author to all romance readers. It does not disappoint.
Channing is the star quarterback of the football team. His star is shooting straight up, and he comes from money. He's happy. So when his grades start to slip, and his place on the team is threatened, he knows he's got to go see the tutor. Ava interests him in a way he didn't expect, however. It isn't long before he's coaxing her into something social. Plus, there's something else in the works.
Soon, the two are drawn to each other more and more. Without thinking, they want to be together. Something that starts out awkward and strange becomes second nature, though they struggle with that. Especially when the real world, and their different paths, collide.
In full disclosure, I read this in exchange for an honest review. I struggled with how to rate this one, I'd probably give it a 3.5. I rounded up, since I kept reading. My biggest struggle was with some of the inconsistencies as well as incorrect things, Specifically having to do with college football, as well as the way one of the teachers is. If those things wouldn't bother you, then no big deal. I also genuinely could not stand Ava's friend Nicole, she had her moments, but she mostly had me rolling my eyes. Not only her announcing to apparently everyone that Ava was a virgin, but her bringing it up. Every. Single. Time. She saw Ava in the first part of the book. Not to mention her advice about labels. But then, Ava was eye rolling at times, and came off downright snotty more than once. But then, Ava and Channing you were meant to learn that they are the way they are for certain reasons. And that as different as two people can be, sometimes it just works. This wasn't my favorite Ivy Jordan book, but it wasn't my least favorite either. Be prepared for some back and forth that felt a little like filler, especially between Channing and Mark, and Ava and Nicole. But if you can move past that, it's a decent story.
